The untimely death of Seve Ballesteros at the age of 54 robs the world of a golfing hero and also a man of great courage and charm.
Seve was a champion who appealed to all, including ordinary golfers who could identify with his sometimes erratic shots but who could never match his magic in recovering from adversity. Unfortunately, he lost his battle against cancer, but he faced his illness with a courage which greatly impressed and inspired everyone who sadly watched him facing his most difficult challenge of all.
